About the Author

Dr. Jacques Vallee was born in France, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from the Sorbonne and a Master of Science in astrophysics from the University of Lille. He began his professional life as an astronomer at the Paris Observatory in 1961. While on the staff of the French Space Committee, he witnessed the destruction of the tracking tapes of unknown objects orbiting the earth, initiating a lifelong interest in the UFO phenomenon. Vallee arrived in the U.S. in 1962, worked in astronomy at the University of Texas at Austin, and wrote two highly respected scientific examinations arguing for the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH) of UFO origins. In 1967, he received a Ph.D. in computer science from Northwestern University, where he became a close associate of J. Allen Hynek, then scientific consultant for the U.S. Air Force on Project Blue Book. Eventually concluding that the ETH was too narrow to encompass the burgeoning UFO data, he conducted his own extensive global research, resulting in the Alien Contact Trilogy. Dr. Vallee is presently a venture capitalist living in San Francisco. His website is www.jacquesvallee.com.

Reviews

"Absolutely fascinating...By far the most interesting and scientific commentator on the UFO phenomenon." - Colin Wilson "With this book, Jacques Vallee has added another important and reasoned analysis to his earlier and now classic considerations of the UFO conundrum...No serious student of UFOs (pro or con) should ignore this addition to the debate." - Marcello Truzzi "Jacques Vallee has again shown why he should be regarded as perhaps our foremost contemporary UFO researcher. In this dark but deeply absorbing book, he has made the strongest case yet for his position that the reality of UFOs is far stranger, and even more omninous, than popular theories of extraterrestrial visitation would have us believe." - Kenneth Ring "Vallee has written another thoughtful and stimulating UFO book...Highly recommended." - Booklist
